Ahmedabad, August 12: A 17-year-old girl, resident of Maninagar, was raped by her computer class instructor and later by a resident of Vejalpur, in a matter of 24 hours. The girl was abandoned at Victoria Garden near Ellisbridge by the latter from where her parents brought her home and filed a complaint for rape.
According to Maninagar police, Rajvi (name changed), comes from a well-to-do family in Maninagar. She was pursuing her diploma in computer applications from an institute in Krishnabaug in the same area. As per investigators, she fell in love with Mitesh Patel, 24, an instructor at the institute.
"Patel took her to a guest house in Khadia after the classes got over on Thursday on the pretext of excursion and had sex with her. The duo then went to places such as Law Garden and Iskcon Mall and then came back to the classes where Patel told her that they can go around together but he cannot marry her. She got heartbroken and after a major fight, took an auto absentmindedly for Jamalpur to commit suicide," said a police official.
The auto driver started talking to her when she told him that she wanted to go to Mumbai and pursue a career. After hearing this, the auto driver, later identified as Imran Khan, took her to his friend Mohammed Shaikh, a youth in late twenties.
"Rajvi stated that Shaikh befriended her and told her that he had contacts in Mumbai and he could help her. Shaikh later took her to a guest house in Danilimda in the night for stay and raped her four times. In the morning, Shaikh and Imran Khan took her in Khan's auto to Victoria Garden and abandoned her there," said the official. One of the duo then called up Rajvi's father about her location from a pay phone, said the official.
V J Gadhavi, inspector of Maninagar police station, said that Patel has been arrested after the complaint and the search for the other two accused is on. "The girl has been sent for medical checkup," he said.
Sources said that Rajvi was adopted by her parents at the age of two. She had earlier fled from home two times and had come back and also tried to commit suicide once. When she did not return home on Thursday, her father had intimated Maninagar police.
